Travel Music: Angèle Dubeau and La Pietà
Before I head out on a journey somewhere around the world, I make sure that my iPhone is loaded with current albums that I might enjoy on my trip.
While I enjoy a wide range of musical styles, my iPhone is packed with classical, opera, jazz, smooth jazz, and a little bit of what might be considered world or new age styles.
Oh, and every album that Chicago ever produced. These are good for road trips. 🙂
If you’ve read this blog for any period of time, you will know that I abhor the process of flying. I love to travel, but I hate flying. Go figure.
Anywho, I got to thinking; because I spend so much time scouring for new experiences for my auditory system before we travel, perhaps a few of my readers would enjoy the results of my search.
So, here is my first stab at this. If any of you read this article, I’ll continue. If no one reads this article, I’ll keep my musical reviews to myself.
Angèle Dubeau and La Pietà, Max Richter Portrait
I came across this album yesterday, and I think I’ve played it six times already. For my travel music, at least where airlines are involved, I trend toward music that is more relaxing and even atmospheric.
This album fits the bill as Angèle Dubeau (Canada’s most prominent recording violinist) and her string orchestra La Pietà, perform hauntingly beautiful pieces by Max Richter, a leader in what is called the post-minimalist movement.

As you can see, I am not a music critic. My intent is to simply share music that I love to have along when we travel.
I hope you enjoy, and please share your thoughts about this album in the comments section below. Thanks!
